Beating debt, this that and the mba, mba, thisthatandthemba

Dear Debt, I am going to defeat you!!!

What does national financial literacy month mean to you? Well for my wife and I, we have set up a plan to pay down some of our debt.  We have accumulated some debt over the past few years.  It was by choice so that she could stay home with our two beautiful children.  I wrote a post the other day asking you to take a moment to review your situation because April is National Financial Literacy Month. Did you take a few moments to see where you stood?  Are you going to do anything about your situation? Our goals are to have all of this done by June 1.  She has 4 payments left on her car and then it is ours baby!!!!  It will be nice to receive that title and see no liens.  Our approach is … [Read More...]

gas, gas prices, oil

Gas prices got you down?

I was sitting there having a mind freeze on what to write and I looked over to my wife and asked her for a topic.  She said, “gas.”  Sitting there thinking that was out of left field, I pretended not to hear and said huh.  Gas prices, Ahh gotcha! Well if you haven’t noticed gas has been creeping up, it seems as though every time I drive past a gas station it is 10 cents higher than it was an hour ago.   I read an article the other day that crude prices over $100 a barrel are going to be the new norm.  There are over 160 different types of oil so they use the terminology of barrel to describe all these types.  A barrel is approximately 42 gallons.    The basic law of supply and demand … [Read More...]

Storage Wars, storage unit, this that and the mba, thisthatandthemba, mba

Yuuuuuuup…….What can Storage Wars teach us about investing?

In case you are not aware of what Storage Wars is, it is a television show on A&E where people bid on lockers at storage facilities.  They get 5 minutes to look inside from the doorway and they cannot open or touch anything in the units.  The show follows 4 personalities as they go from facility to facility, each one having their own style and persona.    One of the lead personalities is David Hester who owns Hester Auctions.  He did not always own the thrift shop and auction house; in fact in 2005 the shop was a furniture store.  Hester always had a knack for selling items, when he was younger he sold his father’s train set piece by piece over a 5 year period.  Hester is known as the … [Read More...]

New Logo

This That and The MBA Evolution

You are not seeing double, this is my new logo.  Well last night I broke the infamous 200,000 Alexa mark.  I can hear the crowd roaring….like when Bubba Watson won the Master’s yesterday!  If you haven’t noticed by a few mentions in the posts I am an avid golfer or should I say hacker.  The timing couldn’t be more perfect.  A few weeks back I was scouring the Craigslist ads looking for a graphic designer to design me a professional logo. If you would like to see the old one click here.  What do you think? If you are anything like me with a site making a few quarters a month you would not want to pay an arm and a leg for a logo.  I use Craigslist for everything; I had someone paint … [Read More...]

For Sale Sign, this that and the mba, mba

Did I hear you right; you want to buy my site?

That’s right I would like to buy your site.  Last night as I was doing my usual musings I received an email soliciting to buy my site.  Of course, I responded to hear them out, but as I sent off the response I sat there imagining myself a lottery millionaire. The longer I sat there the greater the manifestations in my head.  Then it hit me back to reality, how are they going to value my site?  I began to think of a way on how to value my site.  There were a few ways that popped into my head. I did some aggressive Google searching looking for ways to value a website.  I got everything from a few months worth of income to a few years worth of income.  What if your site isn’t monetizing, … [Read More...]
